We are getting in the swing of Whole Foods! Last time there were just a bunch of tables rather than couches, and that seemed to work better for us.
We're going to be having a Meetup at the Whole Foods in Lincoln Park (http://wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/lincolnpark/)! The address is 1550 N. Kingsbury Street. It's just south of North Avenue near Sheffield. There is a giant parking lot for those of you who will be driving, and it's not far from the North/Clybourn Red line stop.
We will be sitting in the upstairs seating - above the food court area. In the back it opens up and has lots of larger tables where we can sit. There are even bathrooms nearby! It is a little tricky to get upstairs, there is an elevator towards the back of the store (behind the food court).
Whole Foods is going to be GREAT! There is so much that you can choose from to eat - they have simple pre-packaged foods like salads and sandwiches, they have different stations where you can get hot meals, they have desserts, coffee drinks, and even BEER. If you haven't yet been to this store it is a bit overwhelming, but it is awesome.
We're also starting this meetup a bit early, since we thought people would stop here before heading home from work. It won't be a problem if you're late, though. Everyone will be buying their own meal and heading upstairs once they have their food.
